It's not surprising that 1 in 3 of us struggle to sleep. The hectic lives we live, coupled with a constant increase in new technology, means we never really switch off and time to ourselves - even when we really need it - can leave us feeling guilty.
But even if you're one of the lucky ones that has no problem falling asleep every night, falling back to sleep can be another matter altogether. Whether you wake up once - or more times than that - to go to the loo, get anxious about how long you have left to sleep or overthink your plans for the next day, you're not alone.
One of the major problems with waking in the night is that we then spend the next minutes - or even hours - worrying about the sleep that we're now losing out on.
